The bandits abducted some students reading for their upcoming examination some weeks ago.

The bandits reportedly came in through the bush, went into three lecture halls, and began to shoot into the air to scare the students.

The students k!lled by the terrorists were identified as Michael Anajuwe James and Musa Hussein.

This was confirmed to SaharaReporters by Michael’s brother in a telephone conversation on Sunday morning.

The brother of the deceased informed SaharaReporters that the family knew about Michael’s d3ath on Saturday. He disclosed that the bodies of his brother and the other m3rdered student were found in a forest in Kwara State.

“The truth is that the government really lied about the rescue of the students. Those they claimed they rescued were those students hiding inside the forest during the invasion.

“But the real ones that were kidnapped, including my brother, were not rescued. They have been with the terrorists since that day,” the family source told SaharaReporters, lamenting that the Kogi State Government abandoned the kidnapped students.

He further revealed that the terrorists first demanded a ransom of N200 million and later brought it down to N100 million, but insisted on that despite several pleas.

He said he offered N4 million but the terrorists were not willing to take the money because “they really wanted a ransom from the government”.

The grieving brother said; “They established a call to demand a ransom of N200 million. Though, I tried negotiating with them, they insisted on N100 million. They (the government) felt reluctant to pay. The state government was sluggish, slow to take action.”

SaharaReporters on Wednesday reported that at least nine students of the university were still with the terrorists.
